Kids Nature Trail to Omahu Bush with Marie Gray and Paul Tebbutt, Summit Road Society.
Join us for this kids adventure down to the waterfall in Omahu Bush. The walk to Anne’s Falls through Omahu Bush follows Prendergast, Kirks and Nelsons tracks. The bush is a private reserve owned by the Summit Road Society but open to the public to value and enjoy. This walk is about 6km in total and is suitable for older children and adults. The bush is a magical place, full of old remnant trees, regenerating bush and ferns. Children will be given a nature trail checklist to find plants, flowers and fungi as we go. We will have lunch at the bottom of Rhodes Track before heading back up through the bush to the carpark. The return trip to the carpark is a 2.5km steady uphill climb, with some steep sections. Walkers do need to be reasonably fit. As we are focused on making the walk fun for the kids, we will take our time, offer plenty of encouragement and stop for breaks and activities along the way.
Children need to be accompanied by an adult with maximum of 5 children per adult.
Note this walk will only be run at Covid-19 Alert Level 1.
Duration: 4-5 hours, 6km. Walk climbs 300m approx.
